We’re a happy family

Blogger has been down for a couple of days - oh nightmare!

What news? I have had some comment via e-mail on the earlier posted deerhound history, mainly on the coursing point, good to receive the feedback, so I have a few interesting postings coming soon. As a dog it can be difficult gaining access to Libraries and Museums, but my human companions have been busy in a variety of locations - National Library of Scotland, Cambridge University Library, Edinburgh University Library amongst others. A little problem is that both them and I don’t read Latin and we are all relying on the translations available.

Much of the medieval and ancient recordings have been scripted in Latin. Although documents located, do provide information from the period in which they were produced. We have to take care to read between the lines of political and religious rhetoric to picture an actual truth.

In the meantime here’s a happy family postcard from days gone by . . . enjoy.
